Tyler, Texas – A federal jury has ordered Apple (NASD: AAPL) to pay $208.5
million in patent infringement damages to Mirror Worlds, over the company’s
Cover Flow album and Time Machine data display features, Bloomberg reports.
Mirror Worlds sued Apple in 2008, alleging infringement of several of its
"document streaming" patents.
Apple’s Cover Flow displays album
artwork in a scrollable visual view, while its Time Machine automatically saves
copies of everything on a user’s Mac, and displays this data in a similar
manner as Cover Flow.
